THE DUPE THREAD!!!

A place to help each other find dupes or color match. Smiley Happy

 

I often find myself looking up products that I wish I could find a dupe for or seeing something and trying to match the color. Thought this be the best place to ask Smiley Wink

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

Desperately searching for a dupe for Laura Mercier's Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour lipsticks, especially the shade Mink! I'm so bummed these were discontinued-- they offered a truly non-drying sheer matte "blotted" stained look. Smiley Sad Any assistance would be appreciated!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

What foundation would be comparable to the Mac mineralized moisture foundation that has been discontinued?! Please help 😩😭 also I don't really need a dupe, I'm ok with the price of high end just need something that's exactly like it!

RE: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

Does anyone know a good “dupe” for the Morphe X James Charles eyeshadow palette? I love the colors but it’s Made in China. I liked the Moschino Laptop palette but it had glittery shades and I just want regular non shiny shadows. Thank you!

THE DUPE THREAD!!!

does anyone know a dupe for ABH liquid lipstick in soft lilac? It doesn't have to be a liquid lipstick but I do want it to be matte. thanks in advance

RE: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

I’ve been a fan of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for years and it’s my number one. It’s so expensive though I’ve found that the L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation is a dupe and it’s only $12!

Luminous Silk is so good, thanks for the dupe recommendat...

Luminous Silk is so good, thanks for the dupe recommendation!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

@meganlisa I was looking online for dupes to the Lipstick Queen Smitten lipstick and I stumbled upon your YouTube review of it! Do you know of any dupes for it? I don't necessarily need the blue pearl but something sheer in that same tone with maybe a glossy finish?

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

I'm not sure if this a "dupe" question exactly... But, I'm wondering if anyone has an insight about the Dior Lip Glow versus the Pat McGrath Lip fetish Lip Balms?  I really enjoy the Dior and have had several colours (Berry is my favourite).  I like that they're so easy to wear, I can put them on without a mirror through the day and they leave a sheer colour behind, sometimes a bit of a stain.  I haven't tried the Pat McGrath, but was wondering if anyone who's tried both could point out similarities and differences?  

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

As far as I can tell the Dior ones are a pH adjusting tint and some stain a little, whereas the PMG are a tinted balm that does not stain.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

 Hello, does anyone know of a more pigmented dupe for NARS dolce vita sheer lipstick? I LOVE the color on the bullet and the finish, which is shiny/glossy, but the color doesn't show up on my lips Smiley Sad 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

@Mrsjfka I think they make Dolce Vita in their matte pencil formula as well. You could try that and top with a clear gloss to get a more pigmented version of the sheer lipstick 

THE DUPE THREAD!!!

Does anyone know of a dupe for the Urban Decay powder foundation in Fair Cool? It's my HG foundation, but after it was discontinued I was only able to find a couple in Nordstrom Rack and I have one left. Looking for something similar in color and coverage and internet searching hasn't helped much. Doesn't need to be a cheaper dupe and I'm willing to pay more to get something like it.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

@Kay522  I went to a site called Findation, which enables you to find matches to current foundations that you have.

When I entered UD Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation in Fair Cool, the suggested replacements that came up were: Mally's Visible Skin Adjustable Coverage Foundation in Fair, Loreal True Match Super Blendable Compact makeup in Natural Ivory C2, Chanel Double Perfection Lumiere Long Wear Flawless Powder Makeup in Beige 10, and Cover Girl Simply Powder Foundation/ Clean Powder Foundation in Ivory 505/105.  

There were several others mentioned that were liquid or stick foundations, if you'd like to research those.

@Ispend2much6 I'll have to check those out! I unfortunate...

@Ispend2much6 I'll have to check those out! I unfortunately don't have much luck with foundation dupes from sites like Findation or Temptalia. I'm hoping someone has used this foundation and maybe can compare it with others, especially drugstore brands since we often can't swatch in store. Smiley Happy

Re: @Ispend2much6 I'll have to check those out! I unfortunate...

@Kay522  It's tough enough finding a foundation to love; it must be ten times more difficult finding a replacement!  I don't know if you have ever used Smashbox's Halo Hydrating Powder, but it's a really nice one.  I used it when I liked using powder foundations (that was about ten years ago.)  I prefer liquid now, but I would also use that as a finishing powder.  I haven't used UD's so I can't compare, but I know the Fair in SBX's was a nice, light shade.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

Hi all! Would anyone know a dupe for bite LLL in 005? I looked at temptalia's dupes but nothing comes close. It's my favorite lilac lippie and when I opened it today it just smelled awful, like burned plastic, and I am pretty sure it turned Smiley Sad

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

For anyone else who might be looking for this color and finish, the closest I found is GIVENCHY - Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick - 14 Violine TroublantSmiley Happy

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

@SurprisedLemur  I own Violine Troublant - it's one of my faves!  Glad you found it Smiley Happy

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

LORAC Matte Lip Color in Dusty Plum...

but it kinda looks like it has been recently discontinued too. Figures!

 

But...I am still seeing it in stock at Kohl's online, and it was much more widespread than the LLL lippies, so finding overstock somewhere shouldn't be too bad 

(and dang, I just got this in BoxyCharm 2-3 months ago...now I know why lol)

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!!!

@SurprisedLemur  NYX Lip Lingerie Matte Liquid Lipstick is a different format, but the color 15 Bustier looks similar.  Also, Lime Crime Velvetine in Cashmere, Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte lipstick in Blushing Pout, maybe Stila's liquid lipstick in Patina.  I can see why you would like another similar shade- it's gorgeous!
